Responding to Resistance:
Sitting with ourselves and others in challenging times

A residential/non-residential weekend retreat with Jeanne Corrigal
January 24-26, 2020, at Queen’s House Retreat & Renewal Centre, Saskatoon

Resistance is a normal human response, in the face of fear, loss, uncertainty, or to the way things are–within ourselves and in the world. “Just let it be” can be easy to say… and very very difficult to do. And yet, we understand this as key to our practice of liberation. Can we truly see resistance as a doorway to peace? This retreat will explore meeting this important part of our experience wisely, as a direct invitation to freedom, skillful action, and even to happiness, in the midst of our world.
